Brown Begins

brownMy Brown University course started yesterday and, so far, I’m impressed with the content and the way the course is being managed on the Coursera platform. It’s quite a demanding schedule; the first week involves an hour or so of video presentations to view, a quiz on the content and a weekly exercise. The criteria for achieving a certificate at the end are pretty stringent compared with some real-world course I’ve taken.

First week includes some material on Abydos, Petra Monsterrat and El Zotz (all sites where Brown U. is working). This has been mostly introductory stuff but there are still some interesting ideas coming out already.
